While I'm trying to decide on my tea of the month for October I'm thinking that the tea of the month for November will be puerh. I've been following the discussion "Yixing Prices and Online Places" and I ended up purchasing an apprentice pot from Red Blossom that tingjunkie recommended. It's functional, attractive and a pleasure to use. Today is day two of my first session with this pot with 1990's (late) Grand Yellow Label sheng from Essence of Tea. My first time with this tea - I only purchased a sample large enough for two session - so I can't comment on the effect of the pot on taste.

I chose: 1) Black tea - Sikkim Temi First Flush from TWG Teas - I enjoy this most at present. The Temi is my favorite FF recently.
2) oolong - Saphir Himalaya ( First Flush) from Mariage Freres - I tried a few oolongs from vendors of my country and got discouraged altogether for a long time. Now can't wait trying more oolong when getting tea next time
